Potential Man United boss tipped to block Arsenal move for forward

Erik Ten Hag is believed to be amongst the front-runners for the Manchester United job this summer, and he is claimed to be keen on bringing PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo with him from Holland.

The Dutch boss is currently in charge of rival club Ajax, but is expected to leave the club after the departure of Marc Overmars from his Director of Football role earlier in the campaign.

He has thoroughly impressed in his current role blooding impressive youngsters into the first-team, whilst providing extremely competitive and aesthetically pleasing football in the process, and this has seen him linked with a number of top jobs around the continent.

The Red Devils brought in Ralf Rangnick this term in hope that he could steady the ship which had been blown off course under the guise of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, with the understanding that he would move into an overseeing role at the end of the campaign, and Ten Hag is one name who continues to be linked with the new manager’s job.

His knowledge of the Dutch division could well see his side land some bargain buys in the coming window, with the Eridivisie known for it’s value deals, and Gakpo is claimed to be one that he will certainly look to bring to Old Trafford if he gets the job, with CaughtOffside citing MEN & The Athletic as their sources for the reports.

Even if Arsenal are unable to sign him, I sincerely hope that Man United don’t land him. They have ruined one-too-many potential superstars with their cursed investment, including the likes of Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial and now Wilfried Zaha, and despite the potential arrival of Ten Hag, there is no guarantee that there will be any change in the attitude of the players. We’ve seen the likes of Jose Mourinho and Louis Van Gaal try their best in the role, proven managers, but the curse has proved unstoppable.

Do you think Gakpo would be a big hit in north London? Should he be weary of considering a move to Old Trafford?

  1. A shame we didn’t go for ten Hag.
    A manager made for the Arsenal way,I can not see him succeeding at manu but atleast they have the ambition to go get him .

    1. To go get ten hag or what are u even saying?
      U are not satisfied yet with the way things is moving and the progress we are making..
      Did having ten hag assure u of winning all available trophies or do u wanna compare holland league to epl……
      How abt Rogers at Celtic?

      They all had unbeaten season then but in Epl things could never be d Same…..
      Guy wake up and appreciate the gold u av in ur hand

      1. @Accurate
        None of the managers you mentioned, took a young team to the. CL and slayed giants…
        And we’ll see at the end of the season about that so called “gold in hand”. Until then, the jury is still out, in my opinion.

    2. @Dan Kit
      He is the real deal when it comes to getting the best out of young players…

      1. He only lead them to the semi final once mate not that they won the trophy so who are the slayed giants you are referring to.

        1. I’ve heard fans say Ten Haag is next to Pep and Klopp coaching ability wise it’s probably United fans getting carried away as they usually do, there’s no guarantee Ten Haag would come to the PL and thrive he’s managing in a farmer’s league and yeah he had good run in the CL couple years back but the jury is still out on him, I think Arteta can be a very good manager and I wouldn’t change things up now, the team seem to be getting much better and with a few more quality signings we’ll only get better.

          1. Even the godfather Ragnick took Schalke to a champions League semi final so if Ten Haags achievements is based on that I wouldn’t look too much into it.
